Clemson Hat

This was the extent of my weekend crafting. It took me about half an hour. I am always wearing Zack's Clemson hat, so, rather than spending an unreasonable amount on a hat because it has a tiger paw on it, I decided to make my own. (These patches are so handy!) He says this fleece is not Clemson orange, but it's not like I was going to find fleece in several shades of orange. Plus, it was on sale for 60% off and it has a cute tiger paw patch on it now and that makes me happy. I can wear it with the Clemson fleece jacket I made. Being orange, it probably won't get as much use as the one I made last year though.

Pink Paper-Pieced Star

I saw a quilt on Flickr and it had a tutorial for a square star block, instead of the rectangular blocks I have used in the past. I love stars, so I just had to try it! I had been wanting to use this combination of fabrics, and this was the perfect project. Unfortunately, I only have two fat quarters of the pink fabric and 1/2 a yard of the sparkly white fabric, so I'm hoping I can get six blocks. They should end up being about 14.5" square.

Finished project.

Bento Box

This top was finished in June, but I just got around to quilting it.

I put it off hoping inspiration would strike and I would come up with a brilliant design for the back. Alas, I gave up on that idea and the back is just plain. I ran out of the paisley fabric (it was a clearance rack purchase and had already been used for a couple other projects), and I just wasn't enthused about any of the designs I came up with using just the green, pink, and blue fabrics.

I am, however, very pleased with the quilted design, even if it required turning the quilt a zillion times.

Finished size: 36"x47"
